Osgoode Transfer 2019

Recommended Posts

Accepted back in the first week of July. Now trying to make sense of how we're supposed to select courses on July 22nd without any access to the syllabus online. Anyone else managed to figure out how we can see the timetable and syllabus?

You can access the syllabus and timetables on myosgoode.yorku.ca without signing in.

Yes, thank you. It was actually a technical issue with my own computer which was basically not getting on to any of the MyOsgoode pages. It worked out as soon as I tried using another computer. 

Thanks for your help!

You have to wait till the latest offer (second batch)  expired/rejected.

Did you receive this update through an Osgoode login account that the school sent you?

All I have is OLSAS and there's no indication of waitlist anywhere.

Uh, no, lol. They didn't send it to me. I guess I should follow up with them. I paid the $300 service fee and completed the application.

Has anybody else not heard back yet? I'm assuming rejection but I'd like that to be confirmed.

got rejected yesterday around 4 PM. It was sitting in review. I know a girl from Windsor who got accepted in early July. Odds aren't looking good if you're still waiting but I have been told they will do a waitlist. So you never know.

My status says I have been added to a wait pool so not much hope there tbh, seems like everyone has almost accepted their transfer offers except 1 or 2 people. I spoke with admissions last week

When did you all apply for the transfer? Is it better to do it before November 1st?  Also is it hard to transfer from certain programs?

How can you do that before Nov 1? You need your 1L grades and LORs. The deadline is sometimes around May 1 (in my cycle)

    • I don't think they weigh your cGPA too heavily. My cGPA is pretty tragic but I have a strong L2 and a sub-par LSAT and was waitlisted last cycle. I know that's not an acceptance but I really do think they prioritize your L2, and favour a strong upward trend. (I have friends who were accepted over previous cycles with lower cGPA's but strong L2's as well). 
    • I was accepted by Western this cycle with with a 3.08 cGPA and a 3.65 L2 (and a 167 LSAT). Mind you, I also have 2 masters degrees and got an A- average in both (both were course-based). I think cGPA does matter, but they account for how long ago your undergrad was and what you've done since then, and whether you've proved that you could probably do better if you were given another chance (and ergo succeed in law school). 
    • Hi, are there any LLM applicants for the year 2021/2022 who received an admission e mail from Dalhousie? My application was completed on 31st March 2021 and waiting for a reply from the University. Just wondering whether any one of you guys have an update.    Thank you!!!
    • There are a lot of municipalities in Canada. City of Toronto hires a few articling students (most of their lawyers are former articling students and they rarely hire from outside though), along with Region of Peel, York Region, and some others I've seen. For federal government, there is only really the DOJ Legal Excellence Program. The municipalities also hire junior lawyers and I've seen quite a few postings in York Region and the surrounding areas. The process is a lot faster than the federal government which can take over a year from the time you apply. The federal government rarely hires junior lawyers outside of its articling students and federal court clerks. And you often see mid-level lawyers applying for LP-01 positions with the federal government and going through a written exam and interview processes just to end up in a waiting pool. I know people who applied in 2019 for the most recent DOJ LP-01 recruitment process and were put into a waiting pool which is scheduled to expire soon, after which point you have to apply all over again. So getting your foot in the door is a lot harder than it is for municipal and provincial. Certainly, getting into provincial is easier than municipal as there are a lot more legal positions available as well. 
    • Hey I'm a bit late here but I can give you my personal experience. It is quit the contrary of what your expectations seem to be. I did 3 years CEGEP and a 4 year Undergrad (just because I took my time). I spent some time managing a restaurant, then started a law certificate in the evening, then law school. I thought I would be disadvantaged because my background was so far away form the classic path to Biglaw. I will be 28 when graduating. I just did my Course aux stages and got 4 offers, while having a 3.65 GPA. First, they don't care about your age. If you have done anything productive in the past 10 years, it will be a great advantage to you in the interviews, because you might have more to say than anyone else. Find a way to highlight your maturity/leadership or whatever it is you have developed while others were in high school. I had a lot of misconceptions about a supposed prejudice towards older candidates, but I can assure you they don't really care. Get involved in whatever gets you going and be passionate about something. Good luck!
